Highly recommend this historic house. Complimentary drinks and canapés at dusk set the scene for a wonderful night stay. Rooms are all unique, with quality toiletries, bath robes, pool and spa, complimentary mini bar, and comfy beds (double). French restaurant across the road was superb - book early. Short walk to Main Street. We were here in winter but it...

This was our second stay at the Willows and our second time in the Library Room. It is just a wonderful place staffed by wonderful people that treat you like royalty! The resort has a fascinating history in Palm Springs that we enjoyed reading about again and imagining what it would have been like to have been here in early...

Despite its central location (right next to the Art Museum!), this gracious home, tucked into the hills felt like a place apart in time and space. Calming & comforting setting, wonderful breakfasts (with great background music), gracious unwinding wine time, lovely vistas, and within walking distance of downtown amenities, the Willows is a place to which I will return.

We had a delightful stay for my birthday recently. Stayed a long weekend. Location perfect...just a block or two in from the main boulevard and right next door to the Palm Springs Museum. Staff were warm and friendly and very unobtrusive. Grounds and main area were clean and cozy and well kept. Breakfasts were good, loved the 5:30 reception with...

I visited Palm Springs for the first time and stayed at The Willows based on a friend's recommendation. I was so pleased that I followed his advice. I arrived and was greeted by Gordon, who is one of the innkeepers. He was friendly and inviting, helping me settle into my room. I stayed in The Palm room, which is one...

This was our second visit - the first was quite a long time ago. This time we stayed in The Library - beautifully appointed, spacious. Cannot say enough nice things about The Willows if you are looking for a lovely, quiet place to stay. It's just a superb place to relax. Service is perfect - casual and friendly hospitality.

The Willows Palm Springs Historic Inn is an exquisite place to stay. We came here to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our stay in the beautifully decorated and spacious Einstein Room was very pleasant. We enjoyed the private patio, and the nightly turn-down service where a special treat awaited us each evening upon our return to the room. We thoroughly...

We found this place online and were happy we could get a room for our anniversary. The room was small and quaint but beautifully appointed. The breakfast room was beautiful and the food was very good. We loved the real silver service and china. We felt like we were back in a European guest house. The staff were very helpful...

My husband and I stayed in the Marion Davies room for our first visit approximately 10 years ago. We made our second visit the week before Thanksgiving and stayed in the Albert Einstein room. I highly recommend both rooms but all of the guest period rooms are charming. The Einstein included a garden patio which we utilized for reading on...

Our room, the Library, was beautifully appointed, immaculate, spacious. We did not get the open views we had hoped for, but were compensated with a private patio with a waterfall. The drawback of our room was a compressor located next to it making noise from time to time. Although we are sensitive to noise, we would not hesitate to return...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A vacation at The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn feels like a visit to a friend's country estate; or rather, an acquaintance who has welcomed some very famous friends into their home over the years. Nestled among stunning mountain vistas, The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn has been a Hollywood favorite for nearly a century. Today, this Mediterranean villa has been meticulously restored to its original elegance of the 1930s. Mahogany-beamed ceilings and natural stone fireplaces are accented by modern amenities such as complimentary high-speed wireless,in-room DVD players and iPod docking stations. A three-course gourmet breakfast next to the waterfall and nightly wine and hors d'oevres are included in the rate, making for an exceptional value. Tour the extensive gardens or relax by the pool. From the luxurious comforters and Egyptian cotton towels, no detail has been overlooked in this secluded desert oasis. ... more   less
